Do I need a referral to go to my OBGYN?

Ver en Español

Most health plans must allow enrollees to see their OBGYN without a referral from their primary care doctor. Women in grandfathered plans may be able to schedule a visit with an OBGYN without a referral. Check with your plan.

While we have made every effort to provide accurate information in these FAQs, people should contact the health insurance Marketplace or Medicaid agency in their state for guidance on their specific circumstances.
